The London House

Caroline Payne thinks itโ€™s just another day of work until she receives a call from Mat Hammond, an old college friend and historian. But pleasantries are cut short. Mat has uncovered a scandalous secret kept buried for decades: In World War II, Carolineโ€™s British great-aunt betrayed family and country to marry her German lover.
Determined to find answers and save her familyโ€™s reputation, Caroline flies to her familyโ€™s ancestral home in London. She and Mat discover diaries and letters that reveal her grandmother and great-aunt were known as the โ€œWaite sisters.โ€ Popular and witty, they came of age during the interwar years, a time of peace and luxury filled with dances, jazz clubs, and romance. The buoyant tone of the correspondence soon yields to sadder revelations as the sisters grow apart, and one leaves home for the glittering fashion scene of Paris, despite rumblings of a coming world war.
Each letter brings more questions. Was Carolineโ€™s great-aunt actually a traitor and Nazi collaborator, or is there a more complex truth buried in the past? Together, Caroline and Mat uncover stories of spies and secrets, love and heartbreak, and the events of one fateful evening in 1941 that changed everything.
In this rich historical novel from award-winning author Katherine Reay, a young woman is tasked with writing the next chapter of her familyโ€™s story. But Caroline must choose whether to embrace a love of her own and proceed with caution if her familyโ€™s decades-old wounds are to heal without tearing them even further apart.

An Historical Fiction Mystery set during WWII, written by an amazing author, it sounds fantastic and I canโ€™t wait to start reading!
